validation problems - tried everything you've told me - now what RRS feed

  • Question

  • On another board - I was told to try some steps - I replied weeks ago and no one has gotten back to me. Please help. Here is what I tried and the results.


    I tried these set of steps.


    (If you access to the start button)

    1) Click the Start button

    2) Type cmd in the Start Search field

    3) At the top the Start window, you will see cmd.exe

    4) Right Click cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: cscript %windir%\System32\slmgr.vbs /ilc %windir%\System32\licensing\ppdlic\Security-Licensing-SLC-ppdlic.xrm-ms

    6) Hit the Enter key

    7) Reboot 2 times


    I am either typing someing incorrectly - or this does not work for me. I keep getting different errors - for example:


    "The system cannot find the path specified."


    "Input Error: There is no file extension in "C:\Windows\system32\windir\System32\slmgr.vbs\ilc"".


    "Input Error: There is no file extension in "C:\Windows\system32\windir"".


    Are the % signs supposed to be spaces? 

    I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    So I went on to the second set of steps.


    (If you access to the start button)

    1) Click the Start button

    2) Type: slui.exe 3 and hit the Enter key

    3) Type in the Product key from the sticker on your computer

    4) Click the Next button.

    5) You will be asked if want to Activate, click ok

    6) It will attempt to Activate by the internet and will return an Invalid Key error (this is ok, continue to step 7)

    7) Click the Start button

    8) Type: slui.exe 4 and hit the Enter key

    9) Select your location in the drop down menu and click the Next button

    10) The next screen provides the number to call to Activate by Phone


    NOTE: when you call that number, you will first hear an Automated Voice that will try to Activate Vista for you. If the Automated Voice gives you an option to talk to a Live Activation Rep, select that option. If not, do not enter any numbers. This should force the Automated Voice to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep. Trying to Activate thru the Automated Voice will not work, in your case, only thru the Live Activation Rep will your Activation be successful.


    Once completed, you may need to reboot twice.


    I called and talked to a live rep - I gave him my numbers and he gave me more numbers - and then he said it was actived an the error message should go away. So I rebooted - and still got the error message. So I rebooted again and again - and guess what - I'm still getting the error message.


    Now what should I try?


    Here is my most recent diagnostic report.

    Hello Lisa,


      Please try the below steps. Although similar, these are not the same steps as you tried before. Also, the % are not spaces, any text in this color should be typed exactly as shown.


    1) Open Internet Browser

    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.

    3) Find the file CMD.exe

    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)

    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing

    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar

    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32

    9) Type: net start slsvc

    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)

    11) Reboot Twice

    12) You may be required to Re-Activate. Use the Activate by Phone method outlined above

    Thank you,

  • I got all the way to step 10 and got the following message:


    Input Error: There is no script engine for file extension ".vbs-rilc".


    Also go this message:

    'scsript' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.


    Now what should I try?

  • okay - I tried it one more time and reliazed you had a space after .vbs -rilc.


    I did it again and it said License files re-installed successfully. It was really quick.


    I'm going to reboot twice now and see what happens.
